Won tickets to a concert while I was in town for work. I have never seen a more well organized and efficient arena. I live in Seattle, and I feel nothing is ever this organized back home. It took merely minutes to get in, even with having to go through security. It was also very clean and well presented on the outside as well as inside. Very impressed
Loved the venue. Easy parking. Well staffed with professional and courteous people. The seats seats were just a smidge too small for a man of girth. I've been in tighter places though. Crowd management was exemplary.
~$50 for uppermost section tickets to a flyers vs predators hockey game. Clean arena. Nice staff. I loved how I could hear the players talking and skating from all the way up in our section. Had a lot of fun! I’d go back for sure! Also loved the free green screen photo booth near the main entrance. Great way to capture memories.
Fantastic place to catch a concert or Predators game! I don't think there is a bad seat in the house! Nashville's downtown is also great if you're looking to kill some time before the event at Bridgestone Arena.
The arena is beautiful, seating is arranged so that any seat is a good seat. Always clean. Ample restrooms. Concessions are varied and convenient. Have been here for Predator games and for concerts. Always pleased.
